Here is Chapter 1 of Driving Through Heaven

Here’s the complete first chapter for you to read

My fundraiser for publishing Driving Through Heaven: The Complete Guide to Knowing God and Living in His Kingdom on Earth has so far received $765, or 11% of our Minimum Goal of $7,000.  Most of the contributions have been for pre-publication orders of paperback and PDF copies of the book.

If you like what you read, please consider pre-ordering copies of the book at the fundraiser website:
